ARLINGTON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- The Scots are coming to town -- and they're bringing Santa with them. The annual Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend heads to town November 30 to December 1, 2012, and the sound of bagpipes will fill the air close to this hotel in downtown Arlington, VA.
Held at the George Washington Masonic Memorial, near this downtown hotel in Arlington, VA, the weekend offers a range of events for the whole family. At the Scottish Christmas Walk Parade, hundreds of Scottish clansmen gather to march through Old Town Alexandria playing their bagpipes; they're joined by Scottie dog groups, pipe and drum bands, Scottish dancers, dignitaries and the jolly man, Santa, himself.
The event, taking place close to this hotel near Reagan Airport, also includes a Christmas Marketplace and Heather and Greens Sales, where holiday gifts and decorations with a Scottish flair will be on sale. To see how those items might look in your own house, the Holiday Designer Tour of Homes takes you inside Old Town Alexandria residences that have been decorated for the holidays by local florists and notable interior designers. A children's tea party and Celtic concert round out the weekend's events.
While the weekend is fun for the whole family, it's not just about bagpipes and parades; the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend raises funds for the Campagna Center, serving Alexandria families in need. For more information, visit www.scottishchristmaswalk.com/events.html or check in with the concierge at this hotel in Arlington near the Metro.

Guestrooms include luxurious bedding, 37-inch flat-panel HDTVs and organic bath amenities, while onsite you'll find a fitness center and indoor heated pool. Before you head out for the day, grab an espresso and pastry at Espressamente Illy, and when you return sit down for a meal of modern Italian fare at SOCCi.
